This movie is not horror but gore.
Josie O.
I can think of some movies that were more gross, some just to be gross and some just because that's how they went.
I can never get my time back that I wasted attempting to watch this thing.

Most of us loony horror fans have sat around and had that conversation where we come up with some of the most deranged and gruesome ideas we can just for the fun of doing it. Well, Todd Six has had this conversation, and then he went ahead and made a movie out of it.
So, here we have Human Centipede, a movie generating a cult film buzz based solely on it's gimmicky and oddball premise.......and what a premise it is! I do have to give it full points for originality. However, the gimmick is where all originality ceases. The gimmick is really all it has going for it. Otherwise this movie plays out pretty much like any other recent torture porn flick. Remove the Cronenbergism from the film and you could easily have this wacko doctor running a basement torture chamber where he hacks off victims' limbs to create artwork or forces people to listen to Nickelback, or whatever the hell they like to do in torture porn films anymore. Basically it's on par with the standard straight-to-video type horror, but with a bit of an edge. That's really all I can say about it.
I really do have to give kudos to the three principal actors who make up the "centipede". They're really not required to do much heavy acting per se, but they have to spend the bulk of the film dirt smeared,(mostly)naked, crying, and in an all around degrading position. They're definitely troopers.
All in all, I wouldn't let the hype get your hopes up. It's got a bit of entertainment value, but it's not nearly as disturbing, frightening , violent or gory as you're lead to believe. To the average Iron Man 2 goer, maybe. But aside from the "centipede", there's nothing here that horror fans haven't seen done before.....and better.

This is not a horror movie. It is a movie about human torture. Plain and simple.

The hype about this movie is the confusion that this is art, or even falls within the realm of the horror (or psychological drama) genre. It doesn't. At first I thought this was going to be a very dark-humor "it's so bad, it's good" type movie. No.

It's not scary, it's not humorous, it's not entertaining, and it is very poorly made on a number of levels.

It's not the gross-out factor that bothers me so much. It's that the movie is really about nothing other than a close-up look of human torture with no point or meaning. Mean-spirited is an understatement. Seriously.

If you like horror movies, skip this.

If you like watching people suffer, being mutilated, and being tortured, then you will enjoy this movie.

I had been hearing about this movie for a while. A friend recommended it to me because I liked the first Saw and Hostel movies (though I hated the sequels) and thought this was on par with those. The reason why I hate the sequels to those movies is because they are less plot driven and instead focus more on just the torture aspects to drive the plot. Hence why they are often called torture porn movies. They don't have any real substance outside of the gory torture scenes. Well, after watching the episode of South Park where they made fun of this (along with Apple and the iPad), I decided I had to watch this movie. I was extremely disappointed in it all. The plot to get the young girls to the doctor's house felt extremely forced. After that, the whole movie was built around (what was essentially) torturing these people along with the whole disgusting factor. There wasn't any moment in the movie where I felt like I was going to be sick. I can handle a lot so the disgusting part didn't bother but I also felt like that was all this movie had going for it.

Yeah, let's watch a vein get ripped out of an arm. Oooh, aahhh. How about watching a guy poo in another character's mouth. Are you scared yet? The plot just seemed rushed, contrived, and there wasn't much to it. I feel that the gross out aspect is the only thing that this movie has going for it and it wasn't really that impressive. If you are going to try to get me to throw up, the least you can do is get me a little nauseous. So I don't really understand all of the buzz around this movie. It had a forced plot, some gore, some gross out moments, and that was it. The movie wasn't scary and I put it on par with any of the recently made Saw movies. I actually received a lot more entertainment from the 22 minute South Park episode than I did this movie (which felt way too long).

I could not decide if this one deserves 5 stars or 1. At first this movie seems like the ultimate low budget, cheesy horror movie cliche. Lost, flat tire, no phone reception, wander to crazy guy house. This is going to suck. Then the wacko doctor explains in detail exactly what he is going to do. WHAT!!!! It is sick and twisted beyond imagination. It is like slowing down to get a good look as you drive past a bad car crash. Then you soon realize that it is nothing like. This is nothing as nice and clean as a horrific crash. It is something that would make Dr Mengele squirm. It takes a little while for it to settle in just how terrible it really is.

The current horror films seem to have a goal of being as gruesome and in your face as possible. The blood and gore in this one is at the PG level. It is obvious that it is intentionally restrained. The SAW movies are as gruesome as they can possibly be, but you forget the story as soon as it is over. Human Centipede has pretty much no graphic images at all. The most disturbing images in the movie are poorly made line drawings.

So does this one get 1 star or 5. It gets 1 star because there is nothing even remotely entertaining about. When it is over you will wish you had not seen it. It gets 5 stars because it is one of the rare truly original movies. You cannot compare it to anything. I have never seen a movie that is anything even remotely like it. The most horrific images in the movie are crude line drawings. And they are more disturbing than any scene in a big budget gore flick. Overall it was fairly well done. A good movie is one that you remember, a bad one is one that you will forget. This is one that you will wish you could get out of your head. Not going to happen! This one is stuck in your head for good.
